Jared Wood overwhelmingly elected to RMT executive

Jared Wood

Jared Wood   (Click to enlarge)

Socialist Party member Jared Wood won a resounding victory in the ballot for London Transport Region representative on the RMT union national executive committee. He secured 1,443 votes, more than double that of his main challenger.

Jared stood on his record of defending jobs and conditions and the socialist aims of the RMT - campaigning for a Jeremy Corbyn-led Labour government armed with socialist policies. He gathered support from the vast majority of reps and branches who campaigned hard for him.

Jared will give a industrial and political lead to: combat the £1 billion worth of cuts by Transport for London; to end shift patterns that are killing tube workers, and fight for a four-day week, and for repeal of the anti-trade union laws.

  • Result: Jared Wood 1,443; Jayesh Patel 629; Lorna Tooley 321.
  • 18.4% turnout
